Air Force not doing enough

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. US SecDef criticizes singles out the USAF for not doing enough inclu. not releasing resources.

  2. I know for a fact there are a lot of people in air mobility command that are already pissed off wth their lot, and this won't help at all. This should have been sorted out behind closed doors.
     
  3. Looks like the USAF's obsession with Stealth a/c and sexy fighters is biting them in the arse. Iraq and Afganistan kinda doesn't need B2's and F22's. but it does need slow moving a/c that can carry everything along with a spare kitchen sink and hang around for hours on end. Bit like the old A-1 or maybe the unsexy and ugly A-10......
     
  4. Agreed, but any action that involves Iran, N.Korea, China or Russia will need F-22s and B-2s. These things have a 15-year plus gestation period and cannot be summoned when necessary.
